Self-Determination is the right to take charge of and be responsible for your own life.  

Commitments by funding agencies and providers serving people with disabilities have required them to encourage participant driven supports and self-determination. This means the individual, not the service system, decides the supports that are needed and used. For those who offer services and funding, self-determination education is important as it changes both the way they think about people with disabilities and the way they serve them.

Self-determination resources help make this evolving concept a reality and are available by leading advocacy groups, professionals and self-advocates.  Program Development Associates has put together an extensive collection that includes self-determination training, video documentary programs, and DVDs focusing on respect, choice and informed decision making.  If you are an advocate, funding agency or service provider and committed to self-determination, community integration or participant-driven services, the Self-Determination Resource Store is a must visit.
